Players can now pre-register for Asphalt 9: Legend as Gameloft opens up pre-registration for the latest game in their long running racing franchise.
Asphalt 9’s pre-registration campaign will reward users based on the achievement of certain community goals each week for four weeks. The first week’s rewards are credits that allow users to upgrade their vehicles, while rewards in following weeks will include free tokens (premium currency), and card packs.
Gameloft’s upcoming racer promises over 50 vehicles, 70 tracks based on real world locations, and the ability to race against up to 7 other players. While 50 vehicles may not seem like much compared to the number of cars previous games have had, it also allows the game’s developer to focus more on each car. Beyond just multiplayer racing, players looking for a more social experience will also be able to join clubs and work with like-minded racers to unlock milestones.
The game will include the option to use Gameloft’s new TouchDrive control system which simplifies the game’s driving controls. Those that prefer to use the classic control scheme will have the option to do so.
Asphalt 9 originally soft launched in the Philippines on iOS earlier this year before letting Filipino Android users in on the action. Given the game’s four week pre-registration campaign, players can expect Asphalt 9’s global release date to be some time in early August or the very end of July.
Asphalt 9: Legends will be free and contain in app purchases. Here is a trailer with a look at the upcoming racing game:
